Gift In-Kind Donation Guidelines

Thank you for thinking of Primary Children's Hospital in your charitable giving. Give now!

We live in a generous community which donates monetarily as well as gifts in-kind to patients at Primary Children's Hospital. Your contributions and donations help speed the healing process of children at our hospital. 

While we love receiving your gifts including toys, blankets, and other in-kind donations, for the protection of our patients, we have restrictions surrounding this process. Please review our guidelines carefully to be certain your donations are acceptable. Please contact Kelly Casey for all gift in-kind inquiries. 

  • All donated items must be new. No used items will be accepted.
  • Donations cannot have any donor identification or contact information (i.e. first or last names, phone numbers, email addresses, website, blogs, personal stories, etc.). If donations include any personal information, they will either be removed before distribution, or the donation may be declined based on the discretion of Foundation personnel. 
  • Donors will not be allowed to personally deliver gifts to patients or families. 
  • Donors should not expect to receive pictures, stories, or updates from patients or families. 
  • No medical equipment, baby formula, or wheelchairs are accepted. 
  • We do not accept violent toys or games (such as toy guns) or paddle balls.
  • For durability and safety purposes, we prefer name brand items when possible.
  • We do not accept gift-wrapped items.
